We want to be soooo different and stand out from the crowd and yet at the same time we want to be like our favorite celebrities and a few of our friends. Which one is it? Do we want to stand out or be like someone else? I’m here to tell you, that you can have them both. Follow righteousness and holiness, JESUS – and he is far bigger than any fame or fortune. And following Jesus (as you know requires obedience) we will stand out!!
We are a peculiar people and we belong to God. It says it in His word.
1Peter 2:9 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light…
1Pet 2:9 NIV But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
We will stand out because we are born again, transformed, and filled with the Holy Spirit. Being a child of God, you are different and set apart to do great things. Go do something great!!
